Laurie Fritzen's Memorial

It is with great sadness that this page for Laurie Fritzen is being made. On December 11, 2019 Laurie passed away unexpectedly at her home. It was a shock to us all. Her husband Joe, whom she always expressed how much she deeply loved, is now a single father to Emily and Samuel. Many have asked if there are ways that they can offer help. Joe has expressed that any donations made will be set aside for the children, as service arrangements are still trying to be finalized so those expenses are unknown. Laurie loved her animals, loved learning, loved books, loved crocheting/sewing, loved Elton John....but most of all Laurie loved her people. Her husband. Her girl. Her boy. She loved being spoiled by Joe, her sweetie, "the most wonderful guy on Earth". She enjoyed crafting with her children, teaching them life skills at a young age to help them throughout their lives. If you have a special memory you would like to leave below they will be collected into a book for the children to have in the future. Thank you all for your thoughtfulness in this time of sadness and disbelief. 

**This page is made by the family and all donations will be directly forwarded to Joe and the children.
